Brandon, of the Woll ongong' Council that ' the com plaint by the Mt.' St.' Thomas Progress Association that they had ? been i charged 25/---for -the - use of the hall ? was incorrect. | Mr. Gilroy said the associa- . tion- had used iront rooms or the hall, and had been charged, only 5/-.

N. Koreans Shell Taejon [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 20 July 1950
If. Koreans SMI Taejon SOUTH KOREA (A.A.P. - Reuter). — North Korean forces started shelling Taejon and a village outside Taejon late this after noon. The American lines around Taejon arc still holding. United States*, and Australian pilots reported that the North Koreans worked hard at rebuild ing the blown-up Taejon Chochiwon highway bridge but air strikes later 'this afternoon slowed them down. The landing of two United States divisions in South Korea is ftot a signal for an American counter-bffensive. It is likely there will be more delaying actions in which rela tively few troops absorb the, brunt of new Communist attacks | and ./give ground grudgingly. But if the American offensive is still weeks away, there should not' be much more retreat, even at/the worst. Dispatches from American As sociated Press at Moscow say ?tie Russians, claim 2500 United States soldiers . and officers, were killed in the .Taejon battle'' on Monday.

FREE MEDICINE WITHOUT PITFALLS [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 20 July 1950
FREE MEDICINE WITHOUT PITFALLS THE NEW 'free medicine' scheme, enun ciated by the Federal Minister for Health (Sir Earle Page) contains all the virtues but few of the defects of the old, proposed by Mr. Chilley but rejected by most of the doctors. Briefly and simply, it is to make all or most of the life-saving drugs available to everyone without charge, but not the more or less household medicines. ' This is the kind of free medicine the pub lic really needs, and the need is felt by all except the most wealthy of us. For with few exceptions, the life-saving drugs are expen sive. Some of them are very expensive. IT IS NOT HUMAI^E that access to these amazing inventions of 20th Century medical science should be denied to any citi . zen in a modern civilisation because his bank roll is not as thick as someone else's. To make all medicines free, as New Zea land experience proved, contained very mat erial drawbacks. First of all there was the ? question of .cost. Such a project, it was ...

Dawson), in the opening speech of welcome, stat ed the visiting team was the suc cessor to the English side which was surprisingly beaten on the Wollongong Showground in 1946.
